I was a happy (albeit possibly in ignorance) user of the old DNSCrypt windows client (0.0.6) but had a recent problem with failed resolutions and it seemed that it was no longer maintained, so thought I would try out Simple DNSCrypt (0.4.3).
But I just can't get it to work. There is no documentation (blank wiki on github) that I can see and the interface is confusing. I eventually managed to enable the Live Log once I'd worked out that it needed a log file location specifying first, but no log entries ever appear.
On the Standard Settings page there are some mystery Services for Primary and Secondary DNSCrypt Service, but I've no idea what these are. Enabling them makes no difference either.
http://welcome.opendns.com/ says that I am not using OpenDNS so there is obviously something fundamentally wrong.
The old WinDNS Crypt client was so much simpler and obvious to use with traffic light status lights etc., so it's shame the new client has regressed in this regard.
